Machining Capabilities

Software Capabilities

We are experienced with materials including: Tool steels (A2, D2, S7, M2, CPM M4, CPM 10V), Carbide (Grinding, and Wire EDM), Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Titanium, and many more.

Wire EDM Services

Our Wire EDM department was specially designed for optimum performance and repeatability in mind. Environmentally controlled within 1 degree, our five Mitsubishi wire EDM machines are capable of running .004 diameter wire and able to hold 2 millionths position accuracy time and again. With Mitsubishi's new Fine Machining power supply, we can produce a 4-6 mircon surface finish.


Our Mitsubishi Series machines provide these services:

  • 4-Axis capabilities
  • 27 degree (max) taper
  • Surface finish 4-6 RA
  • .0001 tolerance

CNC Machining

The pallet changing system allows our machines to be more flexible and efficient in the die making process. One machine takes the place of two previous machines due to increased "spindle ON" time as well as increased "lights out machining". This allows Dies Plus to have more productivity with less resources and not compromising overall flexibility.
